Here's the text message exchange that indicates Hunter is the "bag man" for the Biden family. What that means is that Hunter collects the 💰 and pays all the bills. But the Biden's don't produce anything so what is he collecting 💰 for? What are they selling? (Hint: Your country)
Check out this great supercut of Biden's repeated lies put together by @tomselliott and the good folks at Grabien. Above Drill Down article demolishes every single lie.

From Britney Spears to political rivals, #JoelGreenberg searched the names on confidential database
from @Jason_Garcia & @martinecomas

Article provides a great opportunity for a crash course on the Greenberg/Gaetz #OrlandoMafia. /1
Original Indictment:
While I don't know that I'd go as far as to say all these were nefarious, there are some that these journalist name here that suggest at times Greenberg certainly used his access to the database to advance his or his ally's positions. /2
“I am stunned that he did that,” said Seminole Commissioner Bob Dallari after learning that Greenberg in April 2018 looked up info of his 91yo father, Albert Dallari & his mother, who died >10y ago. “I don’t get why he would do that." #RiverCross /3

Potter is an elected official who has access to millions of dollars - but as the @MontereyHerald reported - when @JoeLivernois & @Calkins_Royal were in charge - he wasn’t a great businessman.

But LH set up a trust to help him get his Casa in the CCBTS. Easy.

In #SDNY, Judge Berman in Courtroom 17B begins by saying he will NOT be making a decision on #JeffreyEpstein's bond application - says he will deliver his decision Thurs July 18 at 9:30 am. Still, hearing going forward today, victims are in court @SDNYLIVE - 1/x thread
On Epstein, Judge Berman says he'll give both sides 20 minutes if they want it. He's beginning with his own set of questions; burden is on government to show no set of conditions could reasonably be expected to bring Epstein back to court. Risk of flight 2/x
Judge Berman Question 1 for defense: how have you rebutted the presumption? To government: how have you been able to prove remand is appropriate. Question 2 (of 5) - since Epstein's had to register as sex offender in NY, FLA, Virgin Is. Q: What about New Mexico?

The MAYOR of #Scranton, PA, William L. Courtright, pleaded guilty to 3 felony corruption charges in a conspiracy to take bribes from vendors who did business with the city in a #PlayToPay scheme.

#ButNothingsHappening
Oh, FFS...do I have dyslexia today or what?

That should be #PayToPlay, not PlayToPay.
It looks like the Mayor just resigned yesterday.

More swamp drainage and lots of #PayToPlay 👇👇👇👇

Former Arkansas Senator Jeremy Hutchinson (R) and two former execs of a Missouri-based charity were indicted for embezzlement, bribery, and illegal campaign contributions.

#ButNothingsHappening
The former "charity" executives were Bontiea Bernedette Goss, 63, her husband, Tommy Ray Goss, also 63, both of Springfield, Missouri.

The "charity" used to be known as "Alternative Opportunities Inc" from 1991 to 2015, when it merged with "Preferred Family Healthcare."
It was basically a big pay to play scheme.

The charitable org received Federal Funds (OUR MONEY) and bribed politicians and in turn, the politicians, including Hutchinson, gave them favorable legislation and money from #Arkansas general fund.

More swamp drainage. 👇👇👇

A Chairman of the North Carolina Republican party, a donor, an investment company founder, and a consultant were indicted for bribery and corruption.

#ButNothingsHappening
Here's who was charged:

Greg Lindberg - Founder/Chairman of Eli Global LLC & Global Bankers Insurance Group (GBIG)

John Gray - Consultant for Lindberg

Robert Cannon Hayes - Chairman of North Carolina Republican party

John Palermo - Chatham County Chairman & Eli Global Exex
Looks like a typical #PayToPlay scheme.

Lindberg & co-conspirators bribed the public officials in exchange for actions that would favor their businesses.
